When he was 12 years old, he started his career under a youth coach, Märt Siigur, in his hometown. He played for local sides Kalju Sindi, KEK Pärnu and JK Pärnu Kalev, before moving to FC Flora Tallinn.
FC Flora Tallinn
He did not enjoy instant success in the new team. He was mostly a bench player and played for the reserve team. Zelinski first made his name in 1994, when he scored a hat-trick in a play-off match for the league title. He made the international debut in the same year, but still failed to become a first team regular in Flora. He bloomed after coming back from a year-long loan to JK Tervis Pärnu, under a new Flora coach, Teitur Thordarson.
In 1999, Zelinski was about to join English side Blackpool F.C. for £150,000 but he was rejected a work permit. Instead he joined Finnish Veikkausliiga side FC Lahti on loan, but failed to make headlines there and returned to Flora the next season.
In 2001, he was bought by Danish side Aalborg BK in 2001, where he joined his international striking partner Andres Oper. The first season was a success as he scored 13 goals and finished fifth in the league top scorers list. In 2002–03 season, the club changed its head coach and Zelinski found himself from the bench, so he was loaned out to Landskrona BoIS and Boldklubben Frem.
FC Levadia Tallinn
In January 2005, he returned to Estonia as a free agent and signed a two-year contract with Flora's league rivals Levadia. In August 2009, he announced that he will almost certainly retire from professional football at the end of the season. He played his last game on November 10, 2009 against Paide Linnameeskond, where he was sent off in the end of the first half for a professional foul.

During his national team career he has been capped 103 times and scored 27 goals, the former Estonian goalscoring record. He made the national team debut on 7 May 1994 against USA. On 16 November 1996 Zelinski scored three goals in a friendly against Indonesia.
His last appearance for Estonia came against Andorra in which he scored the winner in the last minute and was sent off seconds after for taking off his shirt for a second bookable offence. He was interviewed on Sky Sports News saying that he originally had planned to retire from internationals in the autumn, but scoring the winner, it felt like the best time to leave the national scene.
He has a daughter, Johanna-Lisa (b. 2000), with his girlfriend Sigrit Järvamägi, who is a two-time Estonian cup winner with FC Flora Tallinn women's team.
